Wouldn't stay again
creativewriter1985 (Young couple, 7 reviews, 0 photos)
Liked: The location was good and it was easy to find.
Disliked: I wouldn't stay at this site again. There was nothing massively wrong with it, I just felt it was more geared up for caravans than tents.

Peaceful, relaxing, clean
Terry (Mature couple, 1 review, 0 photos)
Liked: Hardstanding on, I would say, all pitches; area for tents and humungous-sized motorhomes!
Disliked: The fact that there is no on-site shop, I didn't like the coded entry to the toilet block (especially after a few beers...kept forgetting the entry code number!). Nearest shop is a Mace (overpriced) store that sell all the things you may need for your camping visit - not easy to find at first, but you'll soon find a shortcut via the tennis courts at the nearby Hilton Hotel.
